Khloe Kardashian will "beat the c**p" out of any girl who hits on her husband.

The reality TV star and socialite - who wed basketball star Lamar Odom in September last year after a whirlwind one month romance - has warned off any women thinking of approaching her new husband.

She said: "If I even imagined someone talking to my husband too close, I would beat the c**p out of them."

The couple recently announced they have stopped using contraception, but Khloe, 25, was keen to stress she is not pregnant yet, although she has put on weight since the wedding - something she blames her husband for.

She added: "I just gained some love weight and it gives Lamar something to hold on to.

"I just haven't been working out as much and eating badly. My husband is known as the candy man. All he does is eat candy, and I join in and that's not great."

Khloe said that now the festive period is over and the couple have settled, she is now starting to work out again.

She said: "Now we're settled in and have bought a house, I'm back to my routine."
